True Joy

I wasn't going to post today.

I was going to take a break. Rest. But after hearing some inspiration this morning I've got this heavy on my mind and had to share with you.

It's about joy.

Do you know what joy is? Have you experienced it? Do you feel joy now?

The problem with joy is that we have misinterpreted it in our culture today. We allow society to manipulate us into materialistic things that we think will bring us joy.

And while that may make us happy, it isn't true joy.

True joy is something inside of us.

It can't be bought. It can't be watched. It can't be mimicked.

True joy is defined by purpose.

Purpose that keeps us going. Makes us decide to wake up every morning.

Once we find our purpose, joy will come.

I know as far as myself, it's not easy. It's not just black and white or straightforward. But that is the formula. And once it's reached, its a feeling that could never be bought.


  1. Your words reflect the beauty of your heart....
